THE Brisbane Golf Club has appointed Victorian David Mason as its new course superintendent.

Mason, who will start in his new role on March 1, has had more than 27 years’ experience in the golf course maintenance industry, including 17 years as a course superintendent.

The 45-year-old is currently course super at Metropolitan Golf Club in Melbourne, a position he has held for the past six years. Metropolitan, which sits in the celebrated Melbourne sand belt, is ranked No.14 in Australia, and in 2018 hosted the PGA Tour World Cup of Golf.

The Brisbane Golf Club president Mark Deuble said the committee had been through an exhaustive process to select a new superintendent.

“His CV is imposing and his experience at this level is outstanding,” he said.

“Importantly, David has installed new irrigation systems at all three golf courses at which he has worked, and we look forward to him overseeing the rectification plans following our recent irrigation installation.

“He can’t wait to join us and likewise, we are excited to have him joining us. And we are extremely optimistic about what improvements he can make to our wonderful golf course.”

Mason describes himself as loyal, passionate and professional and seeks to perform all tasks “to the best of my ability”.

“I am highly motivated and enthusiastic, and seek to provide a professional team environment, and my expectation is to impart leadership qualities which will produce world-class surfaces on the golf course,” he told journalist Tony Durkin.

“I believe my passion, enthusiasm and hands-on approach, along with my knowledge within the industry and experience working at Metropolitan Golf Club will enable me to build on the platforms that have been set by Brett Morris and Mitch Hayes. 

“My goal is to lead the current team to provide a prestigious golfing environment for all members of The Brisbane Golf Club.”
